I've been thinking about why my husband is looking into alternatives to our cable TV subscription. Yes, it's expensive but in all honesty we can afford it.

I think what really infuriates him is the uncertainty. One month we're paying $150. Next month you open the bill and they've cut 5 channels and randomly changed your bill to $180. They didn't tell you ahead of time they were going to cut the channels or raise the rate, and it's not like it matters how much time you spend in front of the TV. It just feels like they're randomly charging you more because they think they can. It IS random, because about half the time you can call them up, yell, and the bill goes back down again.

So there's only so much BS a man can take. It's not the money, it's the...disrespect.
